What is a dramaturg? The dramaturg position is a relatively recent addition to the Theatre Arts. What a dramaturg does varies greatly depending on the needs of the playwright, production, and/or institution with whom the dramaturg is working. Dramaturgs tend to be people who enjoy researching unfamiliar worlds, have a passion for storytelling, and a keen interest in the collaborative creative process. They are fully committed to advocating for the audience point of view.
